A few days ago, I posted an awesome Loki figure from The Avengers made by Hot Toys. It was the first “Geek Gifts” article in a long time and I mentioned that the response to the post would determine if we’d continue the column. Let’s just say it was a success. So, as promised, it’s time for another “Geek Gifts” article and this one is especially relevant for those that like cool t-shirts.
If you’ve ever seen my video interviews, you know I love wearing t-shirts. I especially love wearing shirts that are inspired by my favorite movies and TV shows. Recently, a friend turned me onto a company called RedBubble, and they let their users submit their own designs and some of them are pretty great. Since I know a lot of you don’t have the time to go through the thousands of reader submissions, I’ve done the legwork for you. So hit the jump if you like Studio Ghibli, Breaking Bad, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Tron, the original Superman, Battle of the Planets, The Lion King, and more.
Before going any further, I’ve left out what I really love about RedBubble: they let you pick the color and style of your shirt. Everything is up to you. You choose between 21 different colors and they have every size (small to 3XL) and style (normal t-shirts, v-necks, long sleeve, girly fitted, and hoodie’s). Keep in mind they use American Apparel shirts so they run a bit small.
Regarding price, they’re determined by the shirts creator, but they typically run around $25. I’ve bought a number of the shirts you see below, and I’ve been extremely happy with the quality and how fast they were delivered.
Anyway, enough of my rambling endorsement, here are the shirts with links so you can buy them. But if you have the time, I definitely recommend hitting the front page and going through more of the submissions, because they have a lot more than what I’m posting below.
Finally, if you find something that you think would be a perfect “Geek Gift,” please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know!
